South Star Battery Metals has announced it will begin test drilling this month at its Alabama graphite project. Graphite is an essential material in electric vehicle (EV) batteries.

The company, based in British Columbia, Canada, has contracted another company for a “maiden diamond (DDH) drilling campaign” in the Ceylon Graphite Project in Coosa County. The Alabama project includes drilling 10-15 holes, logging and assays, testing water quality, monitoring groundwater levels and constructing and reclaiming drill pads.

“We are excited to get the maiden drilling campaign started in Alabama and test the extents of the mineralization,” South Star CEO Richard Pearce said in a news release. “This initial drilling campaign will be focused on testing limits and generating significant targets for the 2023 drilling campaign, which will ultimately result in a preliminary economic assessment.”
